Will Pattison is a farmer from the Kingman area north of Camrose. He has a BSc Agriculture (1967) and an MSc in Agricultural Economics (1969) from the University of Alberta. He worked in the Resource Economics Branch of Alberta Agriculture and Forestry in Edmonton before moving to the Kingman area to pursue farming in 1972. While operating a cattle, grain and horse operation, he also served as a sessional lecturer in economics at Augustana for 35 years and as Supervisor of the Battle River [Cattle] Feeders Association for 15 years. Such a blend of theoretical and practical agricultural experience gives him a unique perspective on the agricultural sector, then and now. Will and his spouse Marion currently farm with their daughter and son-in-law; they have four children and four grandchildren.
